Hi

I'd love to join in this thread and try and lose some of my post wedding weight (6kgs in total).

So I weighed myself today and i'm 65.3kgs. I'd like to get to around 59kgs.

My goal for this month is to lose 2 kgs.

Good luck to everyone's weight loss!

I swear I already posted this 2 times already (first time in the wrong section)

Gremlins !!

I'll join too - I have a lot to lose, a good 20kg or so - but I've lost about that in the last year or so since having my daughter and its stayed off. So it is happening slowly but surely but now I'm a bit more motivated.

Back on WW and been steadily losing 1kg per week - and thats with minimal exercise, just eating well.

I'm back too!! Nice to see you lovely ladies again, and welcome new goal setters :mrgreen:

Current weight: 71.8kg
Goal weight :67.8 kg

It's a huge goal, I know!! I got my 3kg goal for last month so hopefully with the extra exercise of boot camp twice a week I can make it 4kg this month. Fingers crossed!!

Good Luck ladies!!

was pacing around the kitchen at work looking at the biscuits in the cupboard and decided on 5 strawberries instead and they were DELICIOUS. That is a win in my book! :lol:

Great job! Strawberries have been really good lately. Much better for you than biscuits!

AFM, planning on going to go to gym tonight, I haven't been in a little while, maybe if I post it here, than I actually will go!

they were really good! :) I am going to go for a big walk around my neighbourhood with my big hot pink headphones on tonight! I always get strange looks, plus I like to sing loudly and stride out with a bit of a skip if I like the song :lol: :roll: :heart:

PT sessions are the best! I might have to arrange a few again. They're great for me as i work out sooo much harder with someone there with me.

That's great Manda! Hope all goes well for your session too Bubbles!

My legs are only starting to like me again after 10km on Sunday and bootcamp Monday night, so I am hoping I will be able to get full on into bootcamp tomorrow night. If FH doesn't have to work this weekend, I have an opportunity to do a 5km time trial on Saturday morning. My legs are going to hate me again!! :lol:

Sounds like everyone is keeping the personal trainers employed :lol:

I have had a half kilo loss, pretty sure it's simply because I am busy with wedding appointments/errands. I :heart: seeing my ticker going the right way :D

My brain doesn't seem to recognise that I have lost this weight. I still pick up XL clothes to buy, which are now too big... Silly brain :lol:

Morning ladies,

I was all ready to join this thread on the 1st of August, but when I checked it hadn't been started. Haven't had a chance to get back on in the last few days. I am really keen to join and have a goal of 65kgs by the end of the month. I weighed in on Monday at 67kgs flat. It is day 4 of no diet coke for me (I used to have one every day with lunch) and I must say I am feeling a lot better already. I am going to do this month on my own just walking and going to the gym at least 3 times a week and see how I go, I figure I might get a PT towards the end of the year to help me tone up in time for the wedding.

We have a big morning tea this morning to farewell our branch as we are all being split up. It will be a HUGE test to see whether I can refrain from all the yummy food, but it is my mission to do so. Hopefully knowing that I have posted on here I won't be tempted to touch anything except the healthy food.

Hope everyone has stayed on track this week so far :)

Have a good day everyone!
